Digi-Key was created with the hobbyist in mind. Digi-Key provides a value-add service of breaking down full manufacturer quantities into more affordable and sensible quantities for individuals. Most of Digi-Key’s parts are sold per piece; meaning if you order qty 1, you will receive a single piece. There are some instances where parts are sold in packs. This will be reflected in the price breaks or noted in the description of the part.
There tends to be some confusion because the “Standard Package” is listed on the Digi-Key website. Please see Digi-Key’s Standard Packaging statement below. This information is helpful for those customers that require full reel, full tube, full tray, or unbroken case quantities.
An example of this part number 296-7025-5-ND. This part comes in a standard tube quantity of 75 pieces. However, the minimum order quantity for this part is 1 piece.
